Riverdale Star Hospitalized After Car Accident

Riverdale star KJ Apa was involved in a recent late-night vehicle crash in Vancouver, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

The outlet reports that Apa, who plays Archie Andrews on the CW show, fell asleep at the wheel during his 45-minute commute after filming in Vancouver, Canada. Apa was apparently driving himself home after midnight when during the 45 minute-trip he fell asleep and lost control of the vehicle.

Candice Patton, a star of The Flash (which share both a network with Riverdale in The CW and an executive proudcer in Greg Berlanti) also took to Twitter this afternoon to wish Apa well. Details on what exactly happened during the accident are vague, but it's reported that the vehicle's passenger side was completely crushed by a pole, and the auto was rendered inoperable.

Sources tell THR that the incident has caused the Riverdale cast and crew to protest against the early-morning shoots, along with not being provided with transportation to and from the set.

Variety reports that production on season 2 of the series, which premieres on Wednesday, October 11, has not been delayed despite the accident.

Riverdale is now filming its second season in Vancouver, Canada, and will be premiering on October 11.

Warner Bros. does not currenty provide transportation to and from the set to members of the cast. "Someone's going to die".

We're just glad K.J.is okay. #ColeSprouse (a.k.a. Jughead) was reportedly planning to accompany Apa during his trip, but ultimately decided against it and stayed on set.

BAZAAR.com has reached out to WBTV and representatives for Apa for comment. However, actors are reportedly encouraged to take a taxi or book a hotel on the studio's dime if they aren't up for the long drive home.
